A movement of reaction against new art appeared at the beginning of the century in France, and even earlier abroad as in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, etc. Some already refer to art nouveau forms as \"soft\" or \"noodle style\" (nou).

The end of the article urges artists to draw inspiration from the classicism of the 18th century marked by \"clarity, order and harmony\" and to take the thread of the history of French styles from the Louis-philippe period, without pasticher.
